North Chapel House, Stanghow Road, Skelton. TS12 2AB
Asking price £299,950

Close to the Village of Skelton-in-Cleveland, North Chapel House originally served as a local nonconformist Chapel for surrounding farmers and locals and played its part to serve the community during both World Wars. In the early turn of this century, the selfless owners slowly converted North Chapel House into a welcoming family home. Since the conversion the property has never been sold so we now have a unique opportunity to acquire a piece of local history and live in an outstanding period property believed to be dating back to 1876.

North Chapel House is set back from the road on the outskirts of this desirable village, which is renowned for having a vibrant and thriving village community with a notable range of local amenities, including two well known public houses, village shops, bistro’s, All Saints Church, doctors surgery, village primary school, all of which are in easy reach.

Fully modernised over the past few years, one of the unique features of Chapel House is its ability to serve as flexible accommodation – with the first floor able to be completely remodelled to create a self-contained space if need, along with a separate detached Garden Room Annexe within the grounds – ideal for the ever popular necessity of a home office or gardener’s cottage.

Throughout the conversion, you’ll still find some truly fantastic pieces of architecture from the original chapel, including one of the authentic pew benches which sits neatly upon entering the Gothic entrance porch, with vaulted beamed ceilings, wooden panelling and over recent years the property has benefitted from a new Vestry roof and all double glazing units were upgraded and replaced, including the fabulous bespoke stained glass Cathedral windows, set within beautiful deep stone sills and arched surrounds – some even having the original wooden shutters. All of which is seamlessly integrated with modern conveniences which in no way detracts from the character of the building.
